    General CommentI don't know if this song is based on Jeff Beck's work, but damn... this song is POWERFUL. The first time I heard this song I was just floored. The guitar is so awesome... it crystallized this feeling of loneliness I had when I first heard it. So now whenever I hear it again, that feeling comes back... but it's such a great track to just let the music wash over you. It sounds like the guitar itself is crying over being alone.

    General CommentBijou is on Innuendo. It's supposed to be inverted in that the guitar plays the part a vocal would normally and the vocal is the solo to the song. Very unique, and a wonderful piece of music.

    movielicious, don't know how much of Queen's work you know, but if you hear this song and like it then check out Nevermore from the Queen II album and You Take My Breath Away from A Day At The Races. And My Melancholy Blues from News Of The World. These songs are simply wonderful pieces, most of them just Fred on the piano. Also the Forever piano piece on the A Kind of Magic CD. That last one is Brian on the piano and is a kind of instumental to the Who Wants To Live Forever song. ALl good stuff. If you enjoy those, then just work your way through the rest of Queen's catalogue. You won't be dissapointed.

    General CommentThank you so much Tatterdemalion for the quick response! :)
    I have the 3 disc Greatest Hits collection that was released about a year or 2 ago. I have heard of the Inneuendo album and my mom actually owns a record of the A Night at the Opera (i think that's what it's called; correct me if I'm wrong).
    I think I have the Classic Queen cassette somewhere and that is wonderful.
    Anyways, thank you so much for the recommendations. :D

    General CommentI am thoroughly confused by the lyrics. At one time, I actually thought that this was dedicated to Brian May's Red Special. 8{
    Beautiful song though.

    General Comment'Bijou' is French for 'jewel.' It's a term of endearment, not sure how common it is. This song is currently my favourite, and has been for a long long time, I doubt that that will ever change.

    Queen are my favourite band, if you like this song, i suggest you listen to 'The Night Comes Down' on the first, self-titled album, the lyrics and melody are absolutely incredible (it takes a while to get into the song, there is a random guitar solo first).

    General CommentBijou was one of his cats, he wrote it to one of his cats, just like Delilah, also on Innuendo :)
